SUNDERLAND make their second visit to Tyneside in the space of five days tonight when the second string meet the Magpies in the reserve team derby.
The Black Cats will look to complete the double over Newcastle at the Sports Direct Arena (7pm kick-off) after November’s 3-0 win at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland hitman Ryan Noble grabbed a hat-trick in that emphatic victory and the 20-year-old is again expected to lead the line tonight as Keith Bertschin’s side look to extended a seven-game unbeaten run.
But they will face a strong Newcastle outfit, with Gabriel Obertan, James Perch and Dan Gosling set to feature for the Magpies.
Sunderland supporters can gain entrance via cash turnstiles 31 to 38 in the North East corner of the stadium. Tickets are priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
